Orange Is the New Black is a hilarious, heartwarming, and often insightful comedic drama about life inside a women's prison. OITNB has been a tremendous hit, with viewers quickly making it the most-watched Netflix original series of all time. Sadly, all great things must come to an end: the seventh and final season is being released this summer, which means that once you're done binging it, you'll have to find something else to obsess over. That's where we come in — Ranker Insights can tell us the movies and TV shows that Orange Is the New Black fans are most likely to watch, and we've compiled the best ones for you right here!
Plenty of the shows and movies we've recommended are similar to OITNB in that they deal with crime, the life of criminals, and the consequences of getting caught — others are the work of Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan. Some recommendations don't have much of a thematic connection to OITNB at all, and just so happen to share a lot of the same audience. Based on the votes of hundreds of Orange Is the New Black viewers like you, we've determined the shows and movies they're statistically most likely to enjoy. We also have data on the people who liked each separate item on the list, and have provided a quick list of other films and TV shows that fans of those items also enjoyed.

Orange Is the New Black fans are 5X more likely to love Edward Scissorhands
If there's any movie we're certain you'll love as an OITNB fan, it's Edward Scissorhands. The story of an "artificial man" with scissors for hands who is adopted by a well-meaning family, Edward Scissorhands is one of director Tim Burton's most popular and most personal achievements. This fish out of water story about an awkward young man stuck in suburbia might not have much in common with Orange Is the New Black, but that hasn't stopped hundreds of OITNB fans from voting up Edward Scissorhands on Ranker movie lists.
Ranker data tells us that people who like these shows and movies tend to also like Edward Scissorhands:
- The Nightmare Before Christmas (9X more likely)
- Beetlejuice (9X more likely)
- Gremlins (9X more likely)
- Sleepy Hallow (8X more likely)
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer (5X more likely)

Orange Is the New Black fans are 8X more likely to love Weeds
Before Orange Is the New Black became one of the dominant shows of the Netflix era of TV, creator Jenji Kohan was making a name for herself with Weeds. The Showtime original drama was among the first big hits in the second "Golden Age of Television" ushered in by The Sopranos in 1999, and follows a widowed mother who turns to selling pot in order to support her two children — an interesting (but considerably less dark) predecessor to Breaking Bad. If you're looking for the kind of darkly quirky writing that defines Orange Is the New Black, there's a very good chance (eight to one, in fact!) that you'll get hooked on Weeds.

Orange Is the New Black fans are 7X more likely to love Sons of Anarchy
No one wants to go to prison, but that doesn't mean that a lot of us aren't very curious about what it's like "on the inside." Orange Is the New Black is thrilling because it gives us access to an isolated, closed-off world that is both terrifying and tittilating — similarly, Sons of Anarchy gives viewers a look at life inside a violent and dangerous biker gang. With both well-written interpersonal drama and exciting action holding the series together, Sons of Anarchy will satisfy your need for great stories about people in dangerous situations. And it also features plenty of prison drama, if that's what drew you to OITNB in the first place.

Orange Is the New Black fans are 6X more likely to love Bates Motel

A prequel to the events depicted in the classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller Psycho, Bates Motel follows Norman Bates and his mother Norma, who purchase a motel in the fictional town of White Pine Bay, Oregon, after the death of Norman's father. A drama that is creepy without sacrificing character depth or story, Bates Motel is perfect for OITNB fans who appreciate a good psychological thriller.
